I've used this backpack daily for the last year. I have chronic pain in my shoulders and wearing this backpack instead of a purse has significantly reduced my problems. It is the perfect size for my daily use, small enough to be light-weight but large enough for my wallet, cellphone, sunglasses, and misc other items. It would be nice if it had an interior pocket. Instead I bought a small, zippered pouch for misc items. I like the simple design, side zipper, and the quality of the leather. My only problem with the backpack is that the straps are not stitched onto the bag strongly enough for daily wear. After only a few months the stitching came apart causing the straps to fall out of the bag. I was able to have a shoe repair shop fix the straps, but it cost an additional $20 for the repair. Overall I've been very happy, and I'd buy again.
